My Dear Little Wife

They are giving a week end pass to 50% of the men this week whether they had a pass last week or were on Harvest furlough. So I could not resist the temptation and have put in for one, to Severn I can go there or to Longford wherever I shall be most welcome.

We were vaccinated yesterday. We had a practice pull or the tug of war rope. I had to pull with the “scrubs.” The scrubs beat the team. I just went in to show Hepworth that I was always a winner.

Bye Bye Sweetheart

Wm J, Wood
